NRCA congratulates R. Alexander Acosta, dean of Florida International University's law school and former assistant attorney general on his confirmation by the U.S. Senate to serve as secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor.
Acosta's extensive experience with employment and labor issues will bring a unique set of qualifications to serve in this position.
The roofing industry has endured a wide array of burdensome regulations issued by federal agencies in recent years.
NRCA stands ready to work with Secretary Acosta to promote and implement policies that improve workplace safety and address other workforce issues while giving entrepreneurs the flexibility to grow their businesses and create high-paying jobs.
His experience with many issues affecting entrepreneurs, the key to greater job creation, make him an exceptional choice to lead the labor department.
